Harpur councillors use ward funds to improve road safety

Harpur councillors Colleen Atkins and Louise Jackson were so concerned about the high number of accidents at a crossroads in the Poets area, they paid for a mini-roundabout from their ward funds.

Situated at the crossroads of Cowper Road with Spenser Road and Byron Crescent, the mini-roundabout has reduced the number of accidents and made the junction.

Colleen said, "The number of accidents at this junction were a great worry to everyone so we invested our ward funds to make it safer."

Louise added, "The mini-roundabout has made a great difference. I'm pleased we took action as the improvement to road safety has certainly been worthwhile."

Below: The junction before the improvements. Cars failed to stop at the crossroads and drove straight into the path of cars that had the right of way causing many collisions.
